Teacher Training Position (and discrimination),

So, recently, I was applying for a Teacher Training position for TESOL program at a institute/agency in Gangnam, Seoul.

And, here is what the conversations between they and I were via email.

Take a look!

FYI, after my last email to them, I never heard back from them.

    Hi! I am so interested in this so I had to leave a comment. It looks like perhaps you could’t attach the conversation because I cannot see it. Maybe the image didn’t come up? In any case I hope to see more here and I’d do my best to support this blog as I can.

      Hi Mikecorea, thanks for your support!
      It seems like there was some kind of technical error.
      I just re-uploaded the conversation in slides.
      Please take a look and spread words about this issue!
      Stay in touch for any ideas or suggestions!
      I am currently planning on making a documentary, so if this is in any of your interest, please let me know!

    Hello and thanks for your response. I just realized (when I saw your picture here) that we are known to each other. Small world!

    A documentary huh? Wow. Interesting.
    I think I could offer something though this is far out of my experience.

    Thanks for updating the slides and I am sorry for being too curious. 😉

    nice to connect with you here.
    I am just now working on a blog post related to native-speakerism!

      Do we know each other? who could you be~ (now, I am more curious)!
      if you are working on native-speakerism, that’s not too far from what I am trying to do here!
      If you know any NNESTs in Korea, please let me know their contact (or vice-versa) and I would love to get more insightful stories/comments from them in detail.

    Shall I quench your curiosity?
    Umm if you click here: https://eltrantsreviewsreflections.wordpress.com/about/
    you can see about me and even see my picture. If that is not enough then perhaps you can send me an email and I will remind you.
    (I think you can see my email through my comments here and we can continue the conversation that way if you prefer)
